There are no words to express the heartache that the East Tennessee State University Counseling staff feel in response to the devastating shooting at the Pulse, a gathering place for fun, celebration and fellowship for the LGBTQ community in Orlando, Florida. Our deepest sympathies go out to the families, friends, loved ones, and allies of those who were harmed or killed in this hate crime.  Many of the people who were shot were college students. Unfortunately,  we are also concerned that the background of the shooter will cause unwarrantable animosity toward others with a similar religion or national origin. It may increase the learned fear that many non-majority culture people often feel . The ETSU Counseling Center is committed to diversity, inclusion, and social justice . Prejudice and hate hurts !

 

We invite any ETSU students who are impacted emotionally by this horrific event who would like help processing your sorrow or distress to come to the Counseling Center on the third floor of the Culp Student Center for our walk-in sessions 10 to 11:30 and 2 to 3:30 Monday through Thursday. We care, and will provide help if you are experiencing distress and need support.

You may be struggling to understand how a mass shooting could take place in a community, even a workplace or military base, and why such a terrible thing would happen.
